The Winter Garden
The Winter Garden is an ongoing Documentary Project based in Christchurch New Zealand. Following the 2010 and 2011 Earthquakes Christine McFetridge has written: 'The work considers my psychological landscape and its connection to belonging, home and post-truamatic growth after this period of transition. I immigrated to Melbourne, Australia, from Christchurch in February 2013 and began photographing during short trips home. With distance my sense of what 'home' was became informed by memory and nostalgia. In the same way Barthes sought a likeness of his mother from photographs after her death, The Winter Garden seeks to identify the faimilar in a place continually changing.'
